What a joy to spend time with this family! Jason, Grace, and their six amazing kiddos were so much fun to photograph! Their October day may have been freezing and super windy, but they all ROCKED it. No one even complained about how cold and windy it was! With the help of happy thoughts about getting home, changing into sweats, and drinking hot chocolate — along with many quick warm up breaks — everyone was happy to tough the cold for the sake of capturing great family photos. When it was her turn for individual photos, even little Julia threw off her coat and said, “I’m not cold!”
One of my favorite parts about family sessions is seeing how the parents interact with and encourage their kids. I loved all the goofy faces and noises Jason made to help draw out the best smiles from his kids! And when it was time to move to a different photo spot, he would lead the boys in sprinting across the grass and leaping over rocks and benches to help stay warm. It was awesome!
Jason and Grace, you have the most beautiful family! You inspire me to raise our own kids to be as joyful, kind, and faithful as your own. It was such an honor for me to capture these family photos for you. I hope you love them as much as I do!
